Write your own dang headline

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this is what a writers strike should look like. Thanks to my buddy, Eric Heidle, for nailing this one on the head.

I've been too busy editing and working on a script for a graphic novel to read why the Writers Guild of America is striking. If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say it's probably related to the dissemination of shows via the Internet. Either that, or someone wanted to bring back Full House. (I'd go on strike too).

Does anyone remember the last writers strike? I was in college. I don't remember it for the lack of shows or the dearth of re-runs. I remember it because some studio exec enlisted the inemitable comic artist, Frank Miller, to cross the picket-line and pen the script for RoboCop II.

Strikes do indeed hurt us all.
